Matt Malone, America’s newest editor-in-chief, served for two years as an associate editor for the publication from 2007-2009, where he covered foreign policy and domestic politics and earned a first place award from the Catholic Press Association for a moving essay recounting his father’s decision to forgive the man responsible for Father Malone’s brother’s death in a drunk driving incident in 1984. Earlier in his career, Father Malone served as deputy director of MassINC, an independent political think tank, and co-publisher of CommonWealth, an award-winning review of politics, policy, ideas and civic life. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a Master’s Degree in philosophy from Fordham University and a graduate degree in theology from Heythrop College in Great Britain and The Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium. “We are pleased to welcome Father Matt Malone back home to America, a place that’s meaningful to him both as a journalist and a Jesuit. A talented writer and editor, he is uniquely qualified to help lead America into its next century,” said Albert C. Pierce, chair of the Board of Directors of America Press, Inc. John Schlegel, SJ, President and Publisher of America, added, “As the 14th editor in America’s 100-year history, Father Malone knows he has big shoes to fill, and we’re confident that he will exceed all expectations.”
